Postcards from the Pacific Northwest

(From top to bottom: yarn at Twisted in Portland; the line at Voodoo Doughnut; the view on the train from Portland to Seattle; dahlias at a Seattle farmer's market; a picnic on the dock at Seward Park; the view from the path at Seward Park; blown glass at the Chihuly Museum.)

A whirlwind three days on the other coast with some of my favorite people in the world. Rejuvenating, inspiring, reaffirming--the best birthday present I could have given myself. Here's to a wonderful year!

Birthday sale!

Oh, blog, I owe you so many posts.  I owe you posts on about seven designs (Stria! Harpswell! RekaviĆ°ur! Triangulate! Marlena! Mariella! And today, In August, Away!), two amazing past trips, (Iceland! Medomak!), two amazing upcoming trips (Portland and Seattle! Kniteast [still spots open in a couple classes--come join us]!), Stock(inette) Market (an amazing six-month retrospective coming soon!), and the general everydayness of my life.  I think at some point I need to declare blog bankruptcy and just move forward (and don't even get me started on how many of you I owe comment replies to.  That keeps me up at night).  But for today--big news! If you enter the coupon code "28on28" at checkout on Ravelry, you'll get 28% off almost all of my patterns (ones not for sale on Ravelry, Twist Collective, and Brooklyn Tweed patterns excluded)! Why 28? Because a week from now, I'll be turning 28 on the 28th--a true golden birthday.  I'm just starting the celebration a week early! The sale will run until the 31st.  Thanks for helping me celebrate!
